Tips & Tricks to Plan Your Best Summer Soirée at The Harrison

July 11, 2019

Summertime is the perfect season for entertaining, and The Harrison is an entertainer’s paradise. With stunning Ken Fulk-designed shared spaces and open-concept residences, our luxury high-rise is well equipped to host your summer soirée. Below, find our best tips and tricks for planning the event of the season.

Choose the right space for your gathering.

As far as party locations go, few locations get anywhere close to the luxury of your own residence at The Harrison. Each residence was designed to be suitable for whatever type of gathering you have in mind. With large kitchens, spacious living areas and open-concept floor plans, the residences easily accommodate all of your guests.


But if you’d like more seating options, Uncle Harry’s can be a beautiful party location. Residents can rent out the 3,500-square-foot penthouse lounge for private parties and social gatherings year-round. Its floor-to-ceiling windows offer unobstructed views of the Bay Bridge for you and your guests to marvel at while you mingle.

Consider local catering options for food and drinks.

Food can be one of the most time-consuming (and stressful) aspects of party planning. Fortunately, San Francisco is one of the food capitals of the world and has no shortage of delectable catering options to choose from. Some local favorites in the SoMa district are Fraiche Catering, Le’s Kitchen Catering, Fogcutter and top restaurants including Lord George and Local Kitchen.


As far as drinks go, the Bay Area is home to dozens of craft breweries, and some of the world’s best wineries are located within a few hours of the city. Without leaving SoMa, you can shop local and imported beers alike at City Beer Store and stock up on regional wine selects (along with plenty of options from around the globe) at The Wine Club.

Take advantage of the Harrison Attaché for party planning assistance.
